Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the hardcover edition:

"This would be a great little book as a gift for your favorite knitter." - Knitting News

"Knitters will appreciate the humour of pen-and-ink cartoons about our beloved craft, as well as the short essays that range from serious to silly scattered throughout. It makes a great little gift for a knitting friend." - Knit Together, the quarterly publication of the Canadian Guild of Knitters

"I don't think there's a better stocking stuffer for the knitter in your life." - About.com Guide to Knitting

"Habit's writing contains enough laughs to make stitches fall right off the needles." - Bangor Daily News

"A fun book for yarn junkies... I laughed at the cartoons and empathised with the essays." - Yarn: The Australian Magazine for Knitting and More

"A fast and hilarious read, it masterfully blends Habit's illustration skills and knitting knowledge to inspire serious laughter." - The Grand Rapids Press

"A knit wit if ever there was one, the multitalented Habit has found a nice platform for his stitchy sensibility... He lovingly tweaks the knitter's psyche." - Yarn Market News

"Habit has a wry wit that fits his sophisticated style and a creative eye that lets him illustrate the stories with talented flair." - Anchorage Daily News

About the Author

Writer, illustrator, and photographer Franklin Habit's first piece of knitting--a vaguely rectangular six-foot scarf--was produced during his student days at Harvard University in the 1990s. Until the widespread revival of the craft, he stitched in solitude, turning out a small but steady stream of mittens, scarves, and hats for startled friends and relations. In February 2005, inspired by the emergence of the online knitting community, he created The Panopticon (the-panopticon.blogspot.com). What began as a project diary is now one of the most popular knitting blogs, with mentions in publications as diverse as Knit 1 and The Advocate. Franklin's publishing experience includes writing lifestyles features for the Boston Phoenix, reading his own essay for the knitting podcast Cast On, and writing for Interweave Knits, PieceWork, Yarn Market News, and Knitty.com. Franklin knits and spins in Chicago, Illinois.
